WOMEN FARMERS.
BY M HOLBROOK, M. I>.
It is often it complaint of farmers that
agricultural newspapers are the same, year
after year ; that they contain little that is
new ; and that a bound volume for any
year will answer just as well as the weekly
visit for the current year in showing how
to raise any specified crop. Without stup
ing to show up the short-sightedness <>!'
such people, I propose b> introduce for the
consideration of the readers of the Farmer
a question somewhat new to most of them,
to wit, the question of " women farmers."
The hist census for England showed this
fact, that there were 44,0UU women who
are denominated farmers, or to speak more
correctly, agricultural laborers. There are
a good many women in America who have
done more or less work on the farm, though
they have not devoted their entire time to
this species of employment. There is also
a class who may with propriety lie called
farmers—women whoso husbands being
dead or in the army, have carried on fann
ing successfully for many years. Within
a few years the idea that agriculture was
adapted to women as an occupation has
slid further been carried out in i'ekin, New
York, by Airs. Roberts and her daughters.
These ladies have chosen their calling not
from necessity, but choice, as other men
and women choose medicine, teaching, etc.
Airs. K. had spent a large portion of her
life as a fashionable woman, and wait un
happy. She wanted to be useful, to ele
vate her sex. She has wisely chosen an
entirely new field, one rich in promise if
rightly worked. The following from the
note book of Mr. Ihiuton of Pekin, gives
something of an idea of what Airs. Roberts
and her daughters do :
" On the fourth, fifth, and sixth of April,
we thrashed oats. One girl stood upon the
la use-power and drove five span of horses ;
another girl stood upon the platfbrm and
pitched the oats, which were unbound, to
1 lie machine ; a third, with the aid of a lit
tle buy, measured up and bagged all the
eats ; a fourth helped to stack the straw.
I lie rest ol the help were men and boys.
"On the seventh and eighth, having a
piece of meadow on which the grass was
light, one of the girls harrowed it ; another
sowed it with oats broadcast ; a third sow
ed grass seed wi.h a patent sower, and a
fourth rolled it.
" The week past we have been opening
apples, potatoes and carrots that were
buried ; cutting ozier willow, and cleaning
up oats. About two hundred bushels of
oats had to be carried in bags, a distance
of several rods, to be cleaned • tins was
all done by the girls. To-day one g'irl is
plowing : the rest are setting out straw
berry, raspberry arid blackberry roots.
"The first week in .May, Airs. Roberts
sowed sixty-five bushels, and one of the
girls sixty-sevn bushels of oats. The har
rowing and rolling the ground was done
by girls. Ibiring the pa t mouth we have
set out three thousand one hundred apple,
pear and peach trees. Fully one half of
these have been set up by tin girls, besides
much of the measuring and stacking. One
of the girls, who is now working her third
year upon the farm, dug the holes and set
as many trees in a day as the men did who
were working with her. One day she
sowed gra.-s seed until eight or nine o'clock
in the iiioniii g, and tin n set out ninety
peach trees.
" In fact they do all kinds of progressive
farm work, sin h as picking up and burning
stumps and r> uts and clearing land, plow
ing, dragging, sowing grain, reaping, ruk
ing, binding, mowing, stacking, tin ashing,
planting, and digging roots, husking corn
and gathering apph s. pulling l!a\, < ct.—
Now they are running a Jiax brake and
scutcher."'
In regard to the effect of their labors up
on strength, Mr. I', says :
'* 1 think they are as strong as the aver
age ol tanner tans of the same weight.
S< vera I girls who came here, pale, thin,
delicate, frail creatures, have, in a year or
two, "in reused several inches around the
waist, and gained still more in health,
strength and power of endurance. 1 fell
you it seems to me that this is the only i
road to health for American women."
Of course it is necessary that they adopt
a styh oj dress convenient iorllieir labors,
and this is v< ry much like the fashionable
ladies' dress used J r battling at Newport,
for climbing the White Aiountuins, and in
the gymnastic classes in large Eastern
eitses. and ill many of our young ladies'
seminaries—devoid of corset at the waist
and a skirt reaching just below the knee.
This gives them freedom of motion and
ability to use what strength they have to
the best advantage. i here are lew persons
who are aware of the loss of physical
strength caused by a tight waist and long
skirts during the hours of active physical
labor.
\\ hat the result of this movement will
be it is not < nsy to foretell. No doubt
there tir. multitudes who will see in it noth
ing but degradation of the sex. Labor on
the farm, they consider unfit for women.—
There is no doubt but farm work as now
conducted would be degrading, but is if
more so than a host of other employments
in which women daily labor for bread* Any
occupation is degrading that lowers the
tone of mind and body below what it other
wise would be. Alany a farmer's wife has
lowered her moral and intellectual standing
by excessive housework.
The American people boast of their de
votion to the fair sex, but they are not suf
ficiently devoted to keep them out of a thou
sand employments that ruin their health
and shorten their lives. They would keep
thein oil' the farm, but crowd them into
school as teachers, into simps, factories,
stores, etc., and yet farm work is no worse
for them than these employments, when we
consider their effect upon health and life.
W hat the American people ought to learn
in their devotion to women is that their
first right and their great want is robust
health, and whatever employment is not
favorable to this is degrading, be it house
keeping or dressmaking. With reference
to th s point an eminent physician says :
• "No enterprise Can be named so well
calculated to elevate, invigorate and en
noble women, and cluck the downward
tendency of the vita! stamina of the race.
"Women all over the civilized world, and
especially in our crowded, luxurious, to
bacco-smoked, and gas-heated cities, are
decaying, dying, for want of heaven's
sweet breath, and a little out-door exercise.
One-half the rising* generation of g*irls are
already unfitted, because of constitutional
frailty, or actual disease, to be wives or
mothers ; while the young men—Heaven
save the mark —are better calculated to till
the arms "of their nursing mothers or be
taken care of by their wealthy or poor re
latives, as tlu- case may be, than tor hus
bands or lathers. \A c are ol the opinion
ih.it hygienic agriculture will soon lead to
physiological habits, and then the world's
redemption from disease, doctors, drugs,
and death will commence it; good earnest.
And it we can have a colony uf women far
mers,we shall have the earth cultivated and
not ravaged. Apple orchards will displace
the piggeries; vineyards will root out the
! hetieries ; flowers will supersede the cow
yards ; and the fields of grain will wave
over the fields now desecrated by droves of
| swine."
I T. AY. lliggiuaoii says : "The truth is, in
all countries female health and strength go
with peasant habits. Whenever the ma jor
ity of women work in the fields, the privi
leged minority are constantly reminded
that they also hold their health by the ten
ure of some substituted activity. With us
all women have been relieved from out-door
labor, and are being* sacrificed in the pro
cess—until they learn to supply its, place."
Before, however, agriculture as a pursuit
becomes adapted to women, great changes
must be effected to allow at the same time
opportunities—so much prized by enlight
ened minds, for culture and refinement.—
It is useless to try to set back the tide ol
feeling in America which lias for its ideal
refined cultivation, or, in other words, love
of music, painting, drawing, poetry, com
position, the beautiful, and yet there isdan
ger at first that those who adopt agricul
ture as a profession, may ignore the piano,
and the so-called accomplishments. Let
them, however, elevate agriculture to the
dignity to which it belongs, choose those
branches not distasteful, such as horticul
ture, gardening, etc., and there will be no
danger of degradation. In a word, if wo
men become farmers, what is coarse apd
degrading must be omitted and agriculture
must be made an occupation that adminis
ters to the taste in a high degree.— Ohio

A NEW WASHING MACHINE.
Rev. P. R. Ai'sri.v, of South Norwulk,
Ct., sends us the following description of a
new Washing .Machine. The machine must
be a very superior one to call forth so flat
tering a testimonial l'roin the above gentle
man :
Having introduced Airs. Lyons' iVrfect
Washing Machine into my family, we arc
so much pleased with it that 1 am con
strained to call the attention of the public
to its advantages. It is incomparably su
perior to anything of the kind which we
have seen ; it seems to reach as near per
fection as anything of the kind which we
can imagine. It has the advanteges over
all other machines in being light and por
table, not weighing more than twenty
pounds ; it can be attached to any washtub,
and is adapted to wash the smallest and
largest articles, by a slight change of
pressure upon the lever : the surface which
comes in contact with the clothes is so
smooth and flexible 4 as to occasion very
little friction, which preserves the texture
of the articles, and saves the expenditure
of strength in operating the machine.—
Ladies who have not been accustomed to
do their own washing, with the aid of this
machine will be able to execute this part of
domestic labor, with great ease and facility.
No one who makes trial of this great im
provement, in one of tin* most laborious
and necessary parts of household labor,
will be willing to dispense with it ; indeed,
1 am inclined to think that this machine is
destined to sniversede all others in this de
partment of labor. P. K. AISTI.W

WATER SHOULD NOT EVAPORATE ON
SOILS.
A correspondent asks a question which
is pertinent to consider in this connection,
lie writes: '* Yyu urge drainage and deep
culture. Why ? To allow the water to
leach through tin* soil '{ Will it not do more
harm than good if allowed to escape in that
way V e cannot suppo.se that our cor
respondent can Im* i*i-ally s< l ions in asking
such qii> stiwns, liioiigh In- may he, J'ur we
■ know they are natural ones for the thought
loss, or those ignorant of natural laws, to
entertain.
In reply, wo would provide that the wa
ter which falls from the clouds should pass
down through the soil, 1m cause.
1. It adds elements to its fertility. Rain
contains ammonia, indeed, it is perhaps
the most important means of conveying the
ammonia of the atmosphere to the roots of
plants. Hut it there is no provision by
which it may pass down through the soil it
i (the water) evaporates, the ammonia is lib
erated in the atmosphere again, and the
process o! evaporation cools the surface of
the soil and retards vegetable growth or
development. Water should not be allowed
to stand on the surface of soils, whether
grain or grass lands, to evaporate.
A 'Fin: air follows water and operates to
disintegrate the particles of soil and lib
erate food for tlie plant to take up, as well
as furnishes iood direct. And air being ad
mitted. the moisture of the atmosphere sup
lilies the plant iti time of draught—in other
words the soil is in condition to alts >rb and
retain moisture sufficient for the purposes
of vegetable growth, without obstructing
that growth by a surplus which must be
got rid of by the chilling (to the plant) pro
cess of evaporation.
•i. Not the least important is the in
creased action of light and heat, from the
sun, iri the developement of the plant. All
know thit the hot, dry seasons develop the
most good, nutritious qualities in forage
and fruit. The grape gives more sugar,
the sugar cane yields a greater per ceiit'ol
saccharine matter, the seeds of the grains
are more perfect y developed, the juices ol'
the grasses are more nutritious, even though
the growth is far less, in a dry season than
in a wet one. And on deep tilled, well
drained soils, it has been again and again
demonstrated that droughts do not. diminish
the quantity, and are sure to improve the
quality ol the product.
No, good friend, rain-water is manure if
properly used. But it must not evaporate.
It is Hod's way of irrigating your soils—a
wonderful provision of which you should
take advantage, it falls upoii the earth,
docs its work, bubbles out at the hill-side in
springs—the mouth of Hod's under-drains
—follows the path of rivulet and river to
the ocean, ascends in vapor, becomes clouds
and descends as rain. So on your little do
main you must make the minor under-drains
and water-coimes which (iod in His wisdom
has taught you are necessary And you
will reap the reward of your labor in more
abundant harvests, fewer failures, a more
healthful climate, and less suffering during*
both the wet and the dry seasons.—Moored
literal A i tr Yorker.
lb -KlN*'. — WHAT IS A HAY'S WORK?—The
question is not yet settled how many bush
els ot corn a inaij should husk ill a day. H.
Scott, Jr., ot Seneca County, N. Y., husked
in a day, working only nine hours, ninety
seven bushels of ears of corn, ninety of
which were good sound ears, and seven of
pour corn. The ears were pulled from the
stock which had been cut from the ground
and ch< eking in the usual way : and the
stocks he bound up as he proceeded. Dur
ing the last hour lie husked twelve bushels.
